Little Tree by Jenny Bowers
Brand Big Picture Press
Watch a tiny seed grow through the seasons into a fine pear tree in this beautifully presented first book from artist/illustrator Jenny Bowers. The lift-the-flap format showcases vibrant artwork with over 20 flaps to discover. The charming rhyming text, which notes the changing weather and wildlife, is gentle and melodic, perfect for reading aloud.
Jenny Bower's illustrations are stunning. From the icy blues and greys of winter to the rich reds and warm oranges of autumn, each double-page spread has a palette of its own and is colour coded to evoke each season in young minds and memories. Flashes of greens, pinks and purples tie everything together beautifully and add surprise elements to each page. Bower's cast of characters reappear across the busy pages in different places so that we can search for them throughout the book and chart their journey too.
